Posts Tagged tuberous breast
Tuberous breasts are breasts with a “tubelike” shape. They are also known as tubular or constricted.
The degree to which the shape develops varies quite a bit. Sometimes the breasts are different sizes with very different shapes. One can be very small almost appearing like a little hanging nipple with very little actual breast tissue. As the severity of the problem increases, there is progressively less breast tissue and skin.
The lady on the next page has a mild degree of the problem.

From these it seems possible that she could have small breast implants, but it is more likely that she has tuberous breasts. There seems to be more tuberous breast change in her left breast than her right.
Tuberous breasts are kinda like windsocks and often have less development on the under surface below the nipple. Breast implants are frequently part of the fix for this problem. The nipple position and breast shape are suggestive in these new images.

Bianca Gascoigne is the subject of an AwfulPlasticSurgery.com post. This is probably a case of Tuberous Breasts years after simple implant placement. I’d wager the breast skin envelopes were pretty uneven to start and bagging her surgeon is probably not warranted. Implant results often need revision when the problem for which they were placed is complicated. Tuberous breasts are not always straight-forward.
